Final Period Films Couples Quiz

Bonus Question: Name the couple and period film pictured above.
A while back I had posted a few of these Period Films Couples Quizzes and they were fairly popular. Before starting to post I had made out a list of period films couples and this game scrapes the bottom of the barrel and uses up the very last of the couples on my list. I tried to make the clues easier but I'm sorry if these are quite hard to guess. Only a few of these couples are heroes/heroines from their story and most are from more obscure period dramas. I hope you enjoy guessing them anyway!

To Play: Read the brief blurbs about each couple and leave a comment guessing the names of the hero, heroine and period film they appear in. I will respond with your score. Guess as many times as you wish. I'll post the answers next weekend. 

Scoring: One point for each correctly guessed hero name, heroine name and period film. Eight points can be earned by correctly guessing the couple and period film in the Bonus Question. A total of 50 points can be earned!

Period Drama Couples Clues:

Couple #1. Precocious writer who requests help from grandmother / Well-educated childhood friend

Couple #2. Blacksmith turned pirate / Governor's adventurous daughter

Couple #3. Free-spirited innocent young woman / Rich and stubborn doubter of her fidelity

Couple #4. Eastern lady whose husband dies / Honorable farmer with young daughter

Couple #5. Imaginative companion who is good with horses / Handsome family friend who values her genuineness 

Couple #6. Hero's sister wronged by uncle's friend / Kind and cheerful gentleman who wins her heart 

Couple #7. Pampered pretty airhead daughter / Poor misguided melancholy artist

Couple #8. Sweet and gentle maiden / Soldier who doubts her faithfulness

Couple #9. Scoundrel who doesn't like to pay his bills / Imaginative hero's niece

Couple #10. Wealthy man with double identity who was found as a child / Fickle friend's cousin with high ideals 

Couple #11. Baronet's spoiled daughter / Would be dull and tedious if not for his money

Couple #12. Put off love caring for her mother and sister /  Army officer who has waited for her

Couple #13. Hero's elegant sweet sister / Old flame she marries but he's not named

Couple #14. Poor and gentle miss with a very tragic past and future / Angelic young farmhand with high moral standards

Happy guessing!
